The firm’s Tax Planning Practice was included among the leading tax law firms in the United States in the Tax Directors Handbook 2010. “Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP’s busy, 10-strong ‘responsive and business-oriented’ Chicago tax practice meets the highly commercial Illinois market well with particular strengths in corporate transactions, banking and finance, real estate and, increasingly, private equity and hedge fund investment,” the Handbook says, citing the firm’s work for Keystone Sports and Entertainment an others in obtaining the operating rights to the new Major League Soccer expansion team in Philadelphia.

Reid Mandel, described as “a brilliant all-round federal taxes lawyer, highly experienced and ‘very constructive,’” was listed as a Leading Global Tax Lawyer. Chicago attorneys Saul Rudo, Sheldon Banoff and Valentina Famparska were also mentioned for their contributions to the practice.
